NOVAK DJOKOVIC SET TO CONTINUE FOR TOKYO OLYMPICS

Novak Djokovic is going to the Tokyo Olympics, keeping alive his chances for a “Golden Slam.”

No man has ever won the four slams and an Olympic gold in the same year, with Germany’s Steffi Graf the only player to accomplish the feat in 1988.

Djokovic posted on Twitter that he had booked his flight and was proud to represent Siberia at the Olympics. After he won Wimbledon on Sunday for his record-tying 20th career Grand Slam title, Djokovic said he didn’t know if he was going to play in Tokyo.

“I am very proud to pack for Tokyo and join our national team in the fight for the brightest medals on the Olympic arenas,” Djokovic, who won a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Games, tweeted.

“For me the game for Siberia has always been a special joy and motivation and I will do my best to make us all happy! Let’s go.”

After winning at Wimbledon, Djokovic said he was not 100 percent sure about competing at the July 23- August 8.

But Novak Djokovic said on Thursday that he had booked his flight for Tokyo.
